DR.MARTENS X THE GREAT FROG
Dr. Martens and the London-based jeweler The Great Frog are presenting their new collaboration. The two brands create their designs without regard to common standards for the subcultures of the music and art scene. The Great Frog has been making high-quality, handmade jewelry in the heart of London since the 1970s. Since then, the brand has remained true to its principles: the gothic designs of the jewelry serve as a statement against the conventions we’re used to, and not just in rock ‘n’ roll. The styles that clash in this collaboration reflect both the dark metallic aesthetic of the London-based jeweler and the cultural brand identity of the iconic brand Dr. Martens.
G-STAR X SUPER73
For this collaboration, G-STAR and SUPER73 have produced a custom limited edition bike, combining design elements from both brands. In authentic G-STAR manier, the individual parts were ground down to create a true RAW material. The use of different metals and the G-STAR branding create an all round unique piece. The denim bike bag can be attached to different parts of the bike. G-STAR made the universal bag entirely out of raw denim for easy transport.
The two brands have selected the coolest Rider Squads from the world’s most famous cities. Each tour features a group of local creatives who reveal their city’s best-kept secrets. From scenic spots to lesser-known places, they ride from one adventure to the next on their SUPER73 bikes.
